HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE FRONT AND THE REA

2009 Toyota Corolla

Brakes problem
2009 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 22000 miles

I wanted to know how you change the brake pads if possible. It would be one less of a hassle to know how to change it myself instead of taking it into a repair shop.

Toyota front pad, rear drum braking systems are probably one of the easiest designs (oops used the easy word :) ) to replace.

Having said that, rear drums on the Corolla should last 70,000-100,000 miles and front pads about 60,000 miles.

This is because the Corolla is a very light car and the brakes are an excellent design. Always check the rotors/drums for excessive wear.

I replaced the rear shoes on my 1991 Corolla at 150K and they were still in good shape.
